Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do: and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun. — Ecclesiastes 2:11

Therefore I hated life; because the work that is wrought under the sun is grievous unto me: for all is vanity and vexation of spirit. — Ecclesiastes 2:17

There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God. — Ecclesiastes 2:24

Praying the world will read God's Word for themselves, and not rely on what someone else tells them His Word says or means.

    1. Vanity and vexation of spirit, how about that :) All of it. Kind of like my house :) I am doing good. We moved into our new temporary home. And I am feeling blessed beyond measure. I posted and update about it :) How about you me love, when are you running away and leaving me to see only glimpses of you :)

      1. I am happy to hear the good news, me dearest, and yes, I read the update and praised God with you. He is so amazing! I won’t ever stop talking about His love and mercies. 💙 Well, on this end, I am holding up quite well despite being exhausted for nothing lately (Thanks anemia!). I hope to change that soon! By the way, how is Mom doing?

    1. Thank you for being so kind to ask. We are still in a holding pattern. The 3rd, yes third adjuster came out. He text me last night and said the new claim has been submitted and it will take 10 to 14 days for it to work it’s way through the system. It didn’t take that long after the storm and there were 10’s of thousands of claims at that time. So, I don’t know but God does.

      God did bless us with a new place to rent. It is much, much cheaper than what we were paying, and although the owners rent it by the week they were kind enough to rent it to us on a month to month basis for cheaper than they could get per week. Please ask God to bless them, as it is peak season, and they could have rented it and made 4 times the money they will be getting from us. God is good to provide. It is a safe place, in a gated complex, right on the water. I feel so overwhelmed with appreciation, and love I don’t know how to put it into words. We can move there Monday because they have a weekly renter in there until then.

      I so do appreciate your prayers, and you asking about us. It is appreciated more than you will ever know. I thank God for you and for continuing to bless you :)

      1. I’m so glad to hear you found a better place and I will pray that God will bless the owners! And that the claim will move faster if possible. I know how stressful this all is can I am blessed by your faith. When our house burned down in Aug. 2000 , it was just such a shock. But God took us through it and I know he is and will be with you.

      2. Praise the LORD, and thank you so much for your encouragement :) He will. He created everything, this isn’t such a big deal for Him. He will use this to His glory, of that I believe with all my heart. Not to make out like, oh this hasn’t bothered me a bit and act like I have been soooooo joyful because that would be a lie but praise God I have done better than I ever would have without Him. He knows when I am at my limit, and He has been so merciful and patient to pull me back in :)
